Scouting Report
Owns a projectable (6-2) frame and the ability to be used as a closer in the minor leagues. Uses deception to get the job done. Has found his niche pitching out of the bullpen. Has control issues that can at times get ugly (even in the minor leagues). Could stand to use more bulk for greater stamina. Needs to become a more consistent pitcher with his delivery.
Long Range Potential: Decent right-hander.
